    It's really Laura's car -she uses it every day. I wasn't sure about the colour at first but I love it now - it looks retro HOT.

    Hi welcome to motoring, enough of the gay jokes please ;)

    That is one of the best handling soft tops available.

    not sure on the colour but great car they've always reminded me of mini dodge vipers although I'd think the mx5 would handle slightly better than a viper :rolleyes:

    hope you have lots of fun with it :)

    Some people seem to take great delight in insulting others by trotting out generalisations. Apart from the insults in this thread there are a couple in the "new Jag" thread trying to insult Jag owners by saying that Jags are old men's cars.

    Perhaps we should introduce a new rule into the motoring forum that anyone who wishes to insult someone else's car should also include in the post what they drive so that we can all insult them too.

    Before anyone wastes an hour or so delving through my old posts I will admit that I have also been guilty of car generalisations :(

    I love the Mazda sport car range, especially the RX8 which i nearly bought but just not practical enough for my needs, a mate has the MX5 and it is also a great car to drive :thumbsup:

    Enjoy !

    horribleman,although your new car may have image problems with some people,those in the know appreciate it for what it is.It is consistently ranked one of the best handling cars available and I hope you have lots of fun with it.

    I'll stick with my C-Max TDCi barge which handles pretty well for a bus!

    We thought about an RX-8 - wasn't too keen on the fuel consumption.

    Lovely to drive though.

    I'm going to get out on the road today just as soon as I have done the garden and cleaned up the house.

    :D

    or the oil consumption which combined with the fuel is a little off putting for such a lovely car

    I think it looks great - I would never think of choosing that colour but I really like it. They're supposed to be a good drive as well :)

    :thumbsup:the unwritten rule in motoring 'is put up or shut up'.

    If people want to slag off others choice of car they better be driving something more special themselves ;)

    Or at least have some sort of proof to back up their statement.

    I'm totally fine if people want to slag it off - I bought it and I love it :)

    Going out for an evening drive later on, wonder where to head to (I live in Herts).

    Any good suggestions people?

    When I worked in Tring I found most of the B roads in Hertfordshire to be fun for driving.
    I hope the weather holds out for you.

    true these can look a little 'stoke on trent' but what a cracking drive they are! i was lucky enough to nab a demo of one for the weekend a few months back and i loved every min of having it

    shame the do have a hairdresser/trolly dolly rep otherwise i'd buy one!

    nice sensible choice.

    this car looks right no matter where it is, from a top hotel, to the supermarket, it never looks outa place,

    well unless your a 6ft + butch male, then it looks a lil confusing lol.


    i was thinking of getting an early example as a cheap lil weekend car meself
